Oh! that one... yes I remember when (circa 1998)  I went through our old 
web sites and removed all these redirects (very bad strategy from a CMS 
point of view, a nightmare in fact) and I put all the redirects into a 
single matrix file with a Rev cgi to drive 404's  to other pages. (I 
still use it today... very sweet and easy to maintain and fast)

But I can see the utility here. No sure if there are pros or cons to 
using this vs Javascript. One could add a button on the interface to 
post "run" to the iRev page and then the iRev page would start inserting 
this into the head... with the URL for the next slide updated on each 
round. If the user clicks a "stop" button then the iRev page removes 
this from the head and reverts to manual drive buttons....

I'll try it. Thanks!
